Six Acts of Faith Quick Picks
Friday night was my first time attending the Acts of Faith Festival Preview event at Theatre IV. The Acts of Faith Festival is a citywide event sponsored by Second Presbyterian Church – each theater company has an offering with an element of faith or spirituality.
This preview was a great way to figure out which shows you want to see and experience a little of everything that is happening in the Richmond theatre community. You can easily find yourself wanting to go to every show presented. Here are a few stand outs.
August: Osage County
Cadence Theatre Co/ Barksdale’s Theatre Gym
Feb. 17 – Mar. 10
It’s an awkward look into the lives of an unhappily married couple. You wonder why these two people who obviously hate each other are still together.
You Don’t Know Me: A Trio of One Acts
Firehouse Theatre Project/VUU
Feb. 16 – Mar. 10
It’s no surprise a Firehouse play makes this list. I have never been disappointed by any of their shows whether it be a full production or staged reading. I’ve had tickets to this show for awhile but had no clue as to the plot.
God of Carnage
Feb. 17 – Mar. 10
Two sets of parents ridiculously try to figure out who is to blame for their two boys getting into a fight.
Richmond Triangle Players
Feb. 22 – Mar. 17
RTP’s next production after 2 Boys in a Bed completes it run. In a scene between an accident victim’s mother and his partner, never has there been so much emotion in silence.
Mar. 9 – Mar. 18
This one had the entire audience laughing to this barely rehearsed reading about Jewish stereotypes.
